On May 26,the Ohio Capital Corporation for Housing (OCCH) recognized Wallick Communities for our 50th anniversary.
Tom Feusse, Chief Executive Officer, accepted the award on behalf of the company at the annual OCCH partners luncheon.
“It’s not what we do that matters most, rather it’s why we do it,” Tom said when he accepted the award. He acknowledged the contributions of Wallick associates as the key component to Wallick’s longevity and success.
“We look forward to the next 50 years,” he continued, which will include “great promise, great plans, and great opportunity.”
Following the luncheon, OCCH hosted an industry and legislative update. One of the key messages of the day was the continued need to advocate for the federal Low-Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC), and to encourage Congressional leadership and staff to visit communities developed using the LITHC program.
As a financial intermediary, OCCH has been a longstanding partner with Wallick Communities, and has invested in several of our communities through their equity funds. Communities that have OCCH investment are eligible for a variety of award and grant opportunities, including the Carol Mount Peterson Resident Development Fund and the Jerry Grier scholarship fund.
